Overview and Progress of Total Sanitation Campaign – Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan

BinTotal Sanitation Campaign is a flagship program of the Government of India. The ‘Total Sanitation Campaign’ (TSC), now rechristened after 2012 as the Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA), aims to accelerate the progress of sanitation in rural areas. Under NBA, projects are sanctioned taking the district as a unit.

Under the NBA, assistance for Solid and Liquid Waste Management (SLWM) projects is available on the basis of total number of households in each Gram Panchayat (GP), subject to a maximum of Rs.7 lakh for a Gram Panchayat having up to 150 households, Rs.12 lakh up to 300 households, Rs.15 lakh up to 500 households and Rs.20 lakh for Gram Panchayats having more than 500 households.  Funding for SLWM project under NBA is provided by the Central and State Governments in the ratio of 70:30. Additional cost requirement can be met with convergence of MGNREGS or from the State/Gram Panchayat funds (Source: PIB)

Till date 607 district projects (including 17 district projects sanctioned in last 3 years and current year), have been sanctioned and are under implementation.  Component-wise funds are not released under the Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan. States/UTs can utilize the funds released to them under the NBA for SLWM activities. Since NBA is demand driven scheme, no State/UT-wise allocation is made. However State/UT-wise central share released during last 3 years and current year is given below;
